    In like manner as the NFL has already done, the NHL has also opted not to play any games in Europe during the 2020-21 season. This eliminates plans for 2 NHL teams to hold their training camps in Europe. Also moved back to North America are regular season games scheduled to be played in Prague and Helsinki.

    Unhappy Manfred to Clark: I might shut down the rest of the 2020 season.

    MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred has warned MLBPA president Tony Clark that he's considering shutting down the Show for the remainder of the 2020 season due to so many players not following the MLB rules regarding COVID19. Specifically mentioned were players high-fiving each other and sitting in the dugout near each other and not wearing masks. Manfred wants to see the players' respect and adherence to COVID19 protocol improve sharply over this weekend, and, while no specific date has been set to do so, if the players keep ignoring the adherence to COVID19 rules, the season could be declared to be over and done with by Manfred possibly as early as Monday.

    Back to bad COVID19 news: the Field of Dreams MLB game between the White Sox and the Cardinals has been cancelled due to, at least in part, the pandemic. MLB tried to blame the cancellation on "logistical problems", a reason which very few fans and sportswriters took seriously. The event now is schedule to take place in 2021.

    The entire 3-game series this weekend in St. Louis between the Cardinals and the Cubs has been cancelled due to the continued outbreak of COVID19 positive tests in the Cardinals organization. It's not been decided if the 3 games will be made up, although any such make-up games between the two teams will have to be played at Wrigley Field, as this was the only road trip to Busch Stadium scheduled for the 2020 Cubs in the revised schedule.

    The Cardinals haven't played a game since July 29.

    The latest sports league to cancel their 2020 season is the Big Sky Conference of the NCAA. Big Sky announced earlier in the week that they were shutting down their football season for 2020.

    The Big Sky Conference has 13 teams whose home universities are spread across the western half of the United States.
